Rising Robots: Is it Obvious Robots Cost Human Jobs? Looking for Someone to Blame?

I broke up the infographic into a series of smaller ones for purposes of discussion, adding red, blue, and purple colored boxes in the following chart.

Robot Usage Since 2009
  • In Europe, except Germany, robot usage is up and employment down.
  • In the US, South Korea, and Germany, robot usage is up and so in human employment.
  • I Japan robot usage and employment are both down.
  • Japan did not even benefit from a falling Yen. 

  • This shows the relative increase in demand for US and Korean cars, and the relative lack of demand for Japanese cars and European cars other than German cars.

    In the US, as long as cars sales remain strong, it appears auto jobs will stay. How long will that be?
